The Redemption Song (Strike First Records/Future Destination Records) will be performing a reunion show in Evansville at The Hatch. The show will be in support of their cancer-striken guitarist, Nathan Schroer. After being in remission for seven years, the cancer relapsed. The reunion show’s profits will go directly to the family to help with medical bills and needs. He isn’t doing very well at this point.

Tickets are only $10; you can buy yours from The Hatch’s website.

From the band:

The proceeds from this show will benefit band member Nathan Schroer and his family to help with medical bills. Nathan is battling Leukemia for the 2nd time in less than 10 years. As a Detective and a Minister, he has helped countless people. Now, he needs our help.

Nathan started his EPD career in law enforcement in 2002. He has been assigned to Motor Patrol, the Crime Prevention Unit, and the Narcotics Unit. Presently, he is assignment to the Holly’s House, where he investigates domestic violence and sex related offenses.

Nathan also played for Evansville hardcore band The Redemption Song from 2000 to 2006. He has done a lot for the scene and we’d love to be able to give back to him.

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
